A good tally of weaner cattle was yarded at Temuka last Thursday, with 1635 head attending. Autumn-born Hereford-Friesian steers, 158-201kg, made $500-$640 with similar prices in the heifer pens where most in the 173-233kg range sold for $500-$645.
In the spring-born pens Hereford-Friesian steers, 118kg, were the heaviest and highest priced at $555, while most others of that breed were closer to 100kg and $450-$540. Heifer prices were softer, with Hereford-Friesian, 99-118kg, sold for $415-$430.
Plenty of Friesian bulls were penned, with a few too many for the buyers. The better lines made $425-$510, and mid-range pens were generally $380-$420.
